These Eight Exceptional Vessels Qigong exercises work with the Qi that is stored in the Exceptional Vessels.  The Exceptional Vessels can be likened to reservoirs while the Meridians can be likened to rivers.  Most Qigong exercises concentrate on the Qi flow in the meridian system.

As well as using the Yi, eyes and breath to guide the Qi, these exercises also make use of the Master Points and the Coupled Points to activate the Qi in the vessels.

 

Exceptional Vessels Qigong

  • The quality of the Qi in the Exceptional Vessels is tangibly different to that of the Qi flowing along the meridians.
  • Only two of the Exceptional Vessels have their own, discrete, acupuncture points.
  • All eight connect to the twelve meridians at Master and Coupled Points.
  • Although the Exceptional Vessels do not have direct connections to the organs their intersections with the main meridians (Master Points) provides indirect access.
  • The Exceptional Vessels are akin to reserve batteries as they provide a reservoir for Qi and blood.

Feedback

  • “I’m really happy with what I gained from the course; an appreciation for the intention and focus of qi gong with regards energy and the points, correct movements, and the confidence to continue practice at home. The website resources are brilliant as a follow up. Thank you very much Des.”
  • “……….thank you so much for Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and I loved your way of teaching. I feel confident and keen to continue practicing what I’ve learned – which was exactly what I was hoping to gain, so much appreciation to you!”
  • “I didn’t realise until several days later that the reason I think I enjoyed this workshop more than the course is because the stance doesn’t change. It allowed me to stop thinking about what was next and where my feet needed to be so I could just focus on the qigong.”
  • “…………. It helped me to appreciate it more as an energetic practice with intention and focus on energy flow, as opposed to simply awareness on physical movement.”
